During the last year and a half I taught visual culture and contemporary and urban art for the Departments of Communication, Visual Arts and Architecture at a private university in Istanbul. Since 2008 I have had a variety of project and curatorial experiences in the UK, Eastern Europe and Turkey including the curation of 8 contemporary art exhibitions and wide knowledge of visual culture, the practice of contemporary art and media studies.
My main contemporary art focus reflects on the artists from the USA, UK, Europe (Hungary, Austria, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Poland), Korea, Japan and Turkey. Curatorial choices of medium and content emphasize multi-media art and installations, digital art, performances, feminist art theory, everyday life studies, and audience reactions to visual culture. My creative vision is influenced strongly by the crosscurrents of contemporary art and culture, and science and technology.
I taught the following courses at the Faculty of Visual Arts, Faculty of Communication, and Faculty of Architecture:
Understanding Today’s Art; Visual Culture, Art and Design; Contemporary Art Theories; Introduction to Visual Communication; Artwork Analysis; Textual Analysis; City, Perception and Art; Portfolio Design I - II; and Public Art.
